Joe Byran could be an even better addition for Leeds United than Matej Vydra.
The Daily Mirror reported yesterday (liveblog entry 14:31) that Leeds want to sign the Bristol City left-back, and if they manage to get a deal over the line, then it would be a stunning transfer.
Leeds’ interest in Vydra has created great excitement, and the striker would undoubtedly be a great addition to Marcelo Bielsa’s squad, but Byran could be even better.
Bristol City defender Bryan is the best left-back in the Championship, and his powerful runs forward make him a major attacking threat.
The 24-year-old is a player who looks perfectly suited for Bielsa’s system, with his high energy performances earning him great praise last term.
Bryan could be a massively influential outlet on the left-hand side of Leeds’ team, and really toughen up the Whites backline at the same time.
It is testament that the likes of Everton and Newcastle United have been linked with a move for Bryan before (Daily Mirror), which is a level higher than Vydra has ever played.
And Leeds fans should be even more excited about potentially seeing Bryan at Elland Road next season than they are to watch Vydra.
